Waste not want not – freezing food in glass
With plenty of summer fruit and veg around now, this is a good time to save as much as possible of any fresh food you have spare now. And you can save it in spare glass jars
It’s January and for many of us this month heralds the inevitable backlash against the indulgence of food and drink during the Christmas period. While there’s no shortage of advice on getting fit and healthy: gyms, the latest diets and the new super-foods, the expense, time and effort these things take can be overwhelming.
We have a simple and easy idea that ticks lots of boxes. A sustainable, money-saving and time-friendly solution: make delicious and healthy one-glass jar meals for the working week. (Hint-it will also save on the washing up!)

Toasted Oat and Coconut Muesli in a jar
